    1. It would have been more delicious were it depicted revenge of the trees, but since their numbers and strength are dwindling fast, vines will have to do.

  2. You okay, Gail?

    Just kidding - this fictional movie would be great if it were full length, ending with the last human zombie devoured by a plant.

    I hope you saw this. At least the headline acknowledges your work and conclusion.

    All the Trees Will Die, and Then So Will You

    [specifically about just one invasive species, the polyphagous shot hole borer and its infestation in Southern CA. Interesting on another level as a GREG McPherson, a research forester with the US Forest Service who conducted the latest study of SoCal’s trees, plays a significant part in this story.]

    Glad to see you still posting, Gail. Sure has gotten a lot worse (on so many fronts) since your last post.

    1. Thanks Tom, I'm okay! I have moved to Maine and been very busy with packing and unpacking, and parental health issues. I couldn't resist posting this video though!

      Yes things have gotten worse, and they're going to get even worse even faster. Fascinating in a ghoulish sort of way.

      I hope you are well. Reconsider joining the Panic Room on facebook? We have a convivial group of Doomours you might enjoy.
